AS most of the nations are faulting China for the outbreak of dreaded coronavirus , Union Minister for Road Transport, National Highway and MSMES  Nitin Gadkari is of view that India should consider converting the world’s “hatred” for the Asian giant into an economic opportunity by attracting large-scale foreign investments. Interacting with overseas Indian student’s through video conference, Gadkari, also a former BJP President, said across the world now, there is “hatred for China. Is it possible for us to convert it into an opportunity for India?” Recalling the economic package announced by Japan for its businesses exiting China, Gadkari said, “I feel that we should think on those lines and we will concentrate on it. We will open the Indian scenario for that. We will give the clearances and everything to them and attract foreign investment. “Reply to a query whether India can take any action against China if it is found to have deliberately “suppressed” information on coronavirus, the minister said this was a sensitive subject concerning the Ministry for  External Affairs and the prime minister, and therefore it will not be appropriate for him to comment on it. All government departments, particularly the finance ministry as well as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), are formulating policies to win the “economic war” post the COVID-19 pandemic and fulfil the prime minister’s dream of making India a USD 5 trillion economy.
